The exhibition NU NUDES presents a highly focused selection of Austrian photography engaging one of the medium’s oldest themes: the nude. The curator, Elsa Okazaki, is a photographer in her own right and has gathered six additional positions that roam the field between domains such as fashion photography, art, and reportage. She gave the photographers carte blanche to interpret the theme as they saw fit, as the widely different compositional solutions illustrate: the show includes glimpses of provocative voyeurism and erotic nude studies, but also pictures that examine the body as a work of art or canvas—some exude sensuality, others are leavened with humor, while yet others offer critical reflections or seem to float in distant spheres.
